Parent Education Programs

These programs help parents develop an awareness of the impact of divorce from the child’s perspective including the misunderstanding that “the divorce is my fault”. The programs also discuss with parents that being emotionally available and involved, being able to communicate effectively, being able to give reassurance, and being able to provide consistency will benefit their child(ren).
